Titan IPA is a big, aggressively hopped India Pale Ale brewed for hop disciples. It starts out with piney hop aromas and citrus hop flavors, and finishes with a nice rich, malty sweetness that is balanced with crisp hop bitterness.

Revisiting Titan. May your first be Titan. Freshness date is important for this IPA.

Looks - Pours into a .5 liter glass with authority. Long lasting dense head, great lacing.
Amber straw haze one expects in a great IPA
Smell - Apple, pine, hay, perfume, this is one to just nose for a while like a glass of wine, would be good in chalice.
Taste - the arc of bitter-sweet-ester-bitter-tickle is like a great companion. It's conversational kissing.
Mouth Feel - Ditto. slight sizzle and brightness along with enough density to know you're drinking a world class beer. Light (because of splendid carbonation) & heavy (weight) at the same time.

In the end, it's the give and take, the yin and yang that makes a great brew, Titan has it in a towering way. My favorite IPA.

Retried this on 8-28-13 and 2-28-17. Review stays the same. My 2nd favorite IPA after Sculpin.

Had on tap at boondocks fun center Thornton

On arrival there is a very light haze in a deep gold body dome lacing forms.

Aroma is more of an old school WCIPA, with a touch of dank edd, and an almost toasty malt in the very back. Not as intense as expected. Slight bitter herbal hops that are almost but not quite piney.

Taste follows the aroma with a decent bitterness right up front, that carries an herbal, dank, flavor that fades slightly to a mellow pine resin, and toasted malt. Super clean and crisp.

The feel is super smooth, due to a dryness taming the full malty body. Finish is longer and is very balanced with a slight warming sensation. Very good 7%+ IPA in this category.

Overall this is pretty good. Nothing crazy out of the ordinary, but a solid WC style IPA with a reasonably unique hop profile.

11/20/22 12oz can from Washington Beer store. Chilly Sunday afternoon before the Steelers/Browns game.

Look is a cloudy gold in Leah's glass, but clear in mine? Same can.

Aroma is tropical pineapple and mango. Slight maltiness.

Decent carbonation. Sweet breadiness, bordering on banana bread. Slight sour undertones. Nice mouthfeel. Hop is present through the whole experience.

Not overly powerful. Brewer's notes describe this well.

Poured a slightly hazy light orange amber color with a two finger white head that dissipated slowly leaving heavy lacing. I suspect that the haziness is from being a few months past the can date.

Fruity nose with pineapple and citrus.

Malty flavor balanced with citrus and a piney finish.

Medium body and carbonation.

Overall, an enjoyable AIPA.

Light amber colour, pinapple smell and a bouquet of exotic fresh fruits with a bucket of IPA thrown in.
